Van Gogh House London

Tour Bookings Are Now Live!

12/04/19

After weeks of preparation, we are excited to announce that we are launching timed entry tours of 87 Hackford Road! Visit our Book a Tour page where you can find more information and follow the link to our Eventbrite page to book. Visitors will have a chance to learn about 87 Hackford Road and its most famous tenant through a guided tour of the surrounding area and the house itself. We will be releasing a new batch of tickets every 3 months, so if you are planning a visit in the future keep checking our site for further dates.

Our dedicated group of volunteer tour guides have been researching the house, its stories, and the local area, and are pictured here studying maps of London documenting areas that were bombed during the war. 87 Hackford Road narrowly avoided destruction during the Blitz - three terrace houses directly next to it (depicted in this sketch) were struck.





Welcome to the Van Gogh House London

Our renovation is now entering its final stages, and in anticipation of the house’s opening later this spring we will be sharing news about the Van Gogh House London with you here. Don’t forget to follow us on Instagram at @vangoghlondon for regular updates to learn more about the project.

During the building works at the house, several artefacts concealed within the floorboards and attic were uncovered by our contractors, Triskele Conservation. Leading Van Gogh expert Martin Bailey (pictured here with our Director) announced these findings in his article Discoveries under the floorboards of Van Gogh’s bedroom in Brixton published in The Art Newspaper last week. Read the article to find out more about the discoveries, which include a prayer book and insurance documents (dated around the time of Van Gogh’s stay!), and a watercolour sketch of flowers. We are excited to be working with the Conservation Department at Camberwell College of Arts, who will be restoring these items.
